I have a really good coconut cake recipe, but was craving chocolate, so I switched out a few ingredients, and this is what I came up with. I took it to work (my co-workers are my guinea pigs, ha), and they all loved it! I hope you do too. :)

As promised, I'm reporting back. This cake is very moist and delicious. My husband doesn't much care for coconut but loved this cake. We love how it's speckled with chocolate chips (I used mini-chocolate chips). I took the advice from another reviewer and toasted the coconut before adding it to the batter. Also? We never got around to the glaze, as we dug into it as soon as it had cooled. And it's wonderful on its own w/o the glaze -- but next time I do want to try it with the glaze (glaze, icing and ganache are usually a must for me!). As I mentioned, I used the Duncan Hines cake mix and Jello brand instant pudding -- the cake popped right out of the Bundt pan at about the 20-minute cooling point with very few crumbs left behind. I love how this cake bakes up really tall -- makes for a beautiful presentation. I've already purchased the ingredients for a second cake to take to a pot luck next weekend. Well done, Sue! I'm also thinking I might use a bit of Coconut Rum in place of some of the water one day to make an "adult" version. Oh, and I forgot to add: I did not realize until the other day at the store that there are now Almond Joy and Mounds puddings at HEB! Now THOSE would be interesting to try!

Pro tip: for those of you who may be wondering about cake mixes that don't contain pudding, I just called Duncan Hines to ask about their "Classic (insert flavor here) Deliciously Moist Cake Mix." I got it straight from the horse's mouth -- these mixes have no pudding in them. I'd read about this factoid on another baking thread, but the info was posted in 2004, so I thought I'd give them a call to make sure nothing had changed since then. Also, my local HEB (in Austin) has D.H. cake mixes priced at $1.00 right now. Picked up a box of Devil's Food and am planning to make this cake today. Will report back with the results.

I am always on the look out for new bundt cake recipes and this one at first glance looked like it could be a good one. However, the minute I saw it was made with a prepackaged cake mix I knew it wasn't for me. With a little time and effort this cake could be outstanding if the entire thing was from scratch. Too bad.
